// teaching

I’m taking a leaf out of Seth Godin‘s book this week and going for a shorter post instead.

I’m looking forward to watching Jamie Oliver’s Dream School, which starts on Channel 4 on Wednesday this week, both because I admire Jamie’s outlook on the world generally and I think his philosophy will translate well when it comes to teaching. But a few discussions this week have got me wondering what is is that teachers should do and be.

Is a teacher someone possessed of superior knowledge trying to impart that knowledge to others? Is a teacher a facilitator for young people, a spur to revelation and self-realisation? Is a teacher a mentor, a model for how people should live and act?

How holistic do you think teaching can and should be – both generally, and in a Christian context?

And where do you get that from?

Thoughts please.
